What a Fool Believes aka #PodestaEmails

Collaboration Mode

In light of the #PodestaEmails, I figured this would be a great time to collaborate with my Progressive Army Sister – Pamela Elaine. She is one of my favorite writers – Straight FLAMES every time! In the true collaborative spirit of hip-hop, I’m going to open for my betters and let her close out the track with her Prophetic Fire, as she is want to do.

Never. Get. Tired.

My timeline has been aflame since WikiLeaks dropped the Podesta email cache. All I have to say is:

The “I told you so” Business

Business is indeed GOOD, Family! Since I awakened & climbed on the Love Train, my Progressive Army colleagues and I have been sounding alarm of what a Clinton/DNC White House would entail- more war, Wall Street running free, how crappy the Dem (corporate) Party has become, race/economics, racism in both parties, faux feminism, real privilege, etc. I could go on all day. This website has been warning you about your folks for nearly a full year.

We were Right About Bernie and his Coalition of the Willing. We even put hands on Fascism, for chrissakes! You folks got talked out of believing Black people are more likely to be poor in this country. GTFOH!

Who hurt you, boo?

I could go on and on. So much horrid stuff in the #PodestaEmails You ALL chose cruel gas-lighting, hysterically false claims of sexism and racism. Guess what? We were telling you the damn truth and nothing but. That’s real patriotism and friendship – telling painful truths. The list of people that lied and mislead you is so long I could do an entire article with a high word count on that alone.

Now the real test: Do you have the courage to call those people on their bulls**t?

Each and every one of them. They are of little-to-no value to me. I never bought into the various lines of crap. YOU did. You worshiped their every word, tweet, article or podcast. Check their bank statements and then check yours. That is where the truth lies. Did they get a promotion, bonus, etc.? Folks like me don’t make the big bucks. Why? Because I told you the truth. No money in that.

Darkness meet Light

Well, well, well… What have the (fake) Russians done? Recently-evil WikiLeaks has shed some much-needed sunlight on the DNC, Super PACs and Clinton years-long tryst in the #PodestaEmails. But, guess who is getting fu*ked? Yes. That’s right- me, you and the illusion of democracy. Me and mine are getting screwed more because you slid your fake-Progressive ass back in the Matrix.


We are still out here fighting the good fight. Trying to right the ship. But, you are running around here supporting your abuser. Hillary has been selling you out in private speeches to the donor class for years. You thought $250k was the cost to hear a former Secretary of State speak? Nope. They were paying for access to a future POTUS.

Here is a nice passage:


You told us she was a Progressive. Right?

Get ’em, Sis!

Yo, yo, microphone check one, two, one, two!

We are so tired of the prostituting of feminism. Telling us that voting for Hillary was my penance for having a vagina and any critique of her was abandoning the cause. I am done with your flailing me with my blackness as a means to your ends. Trotting out the sacrifice of my ancestors while you still hold policies that hold back their descendants.

None of us true progressives owe anyone our vote. We are not obligated to put out the fire that your voting for the lesser evil has stoked over the years. We are furious to have been put in this position and damned done allowing you to belittle us in the process of asking for our help.

Because our help is what you need after decades of inattention. Our help is what you need after doing everything we warned you against. How dare you insult us and our passion! Our loyalty to our morals is exactly what you should have done years ago to keep us from ending up here.

Here is where fear and pandering are all you have left. Here is where the rubber meets the road that is paved over our hopes and dreams.

We are still fighting the good fight even if you have long forgotten what that means.


Tried to Tell You

That is my Sister, @goddesspamela! We have said our piece. I will continue to be unbearable until 2020, just to be clear.
